NCSL Registration Policies 2021
Online meeting registration requires payment by credit card. However, legislators and legislative staff may register online without a credit card guarantee because NCSL can bill your state in most cases. Attendees from the same organization must register independently. No exceptions will be made.
Credit card payment is required for the CLE administrative fee and guest registration fees. Guest registration is meant to accommodate spouses and immediate family members. Spouse/guest designation will be clearly visible on name badges, and they will not be permitted to attend sessions.
Registration Substitution Policy: A $50 fee, plus any difference in registration rates, will be charged for all substitutions received by midnight MDT on Oct. 8, 2021. After this date, substitutions are prohibited.
To make a substitution:
- Submit a written notice of cancellation requesting payment transfer to email@example.com.
- Then submit a new registration form.
Registration Cancellation & Refund Policy: All cancellations must be in writing and can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
